Done in early December

I made an easy tied baby quilt for my niece.  I forgot to take a picture of it.  Oh well.

Then I finished a small stuffed "Christmas bird" for my mom.

I've also been working on my Tree of Life crazy quilt.  It is coming slowly, but I like what I am doing.

I am using the detached chain stitch inside the tree with a brown pearl cotton thread and then threading a sparkly undyed rayon thread underneath it.  I got the idea from this post here:

I am doing the chain stitch in a different way but that was my inspiration for the idea. Thanks, Sharon Boggin of www.pintangle

Now I just need to work like crazy to get this done before January 15th!
